Essex BAP species

This page lists species in the Essex Biodiversity Action Plan.

Species recorded in Essex with data available here, in some cases currently only a small proportion of the county records that exist (see the Species search page for more information on the taxonomic groups currently covered) - there are many others that cannot yet be mapped.
